economic advisor here, she said all of this is going to take time. she uses this description, talking about a lanche ship or a supertanker. you can turn the steering wheel, but it will take time for that ship to turn around. she said that the recovery is similar and everyone has to be patient. >> what's important is not where the president is in the first 100 or the second 100 days. they're going to take the view that in the economy, we inherted an awful mess. they're wapting ingwaiting to final grade is, understanding we have a lot of work to do. they didn't expect we would turn everything around, wave our magic wand, and fix every problem in 200 days. >> when the conversation comes up about these unemployment numbers, the white house again will always say that the president is never satisfied and will not be satisfied untilever american out there out of work and looking for a job can get a job, kiran. >> congress on recess today. we know lawmakers are going back home. they're trying to shore up support for health care reform. this is one town hall meeting. this is kathy caster. take a lo
